7 string steel string acoustics

is anyone still making one of these as a production model. Ibanez and Dean made them years ago, but wasn't sure if anyone else every has. These aren't easy to find used anymore.

I would like to get a 7 or 8 string acoustic, but i would have to get a custom built one and sell my Abyss in order to afford it. I guess that really wouldn't be a horrible thing considering i never play electric anymore... Although it does have piezos in the bridge,which i could use to get acoustic tones through an acoustic amp. It's just not quite the same though.

Anyway are there any other production 7 acoustics that i'm missing?

Re: 7 string steel string acoustics

The only company I know that costructs 7 string acoustics is Emerald. Check this:


There is also a 7string acoustic by Martin (Roger McGuinn), but it's not a real 7 string, it just got an octave string (like a 12-string) and there are 6 and 8 string baritones by Taylor (the 8 string is similar to the Martin 7-string, with two octave strings). Check them here:

Re: 7 string steel string acoustics

i don't partically want a carbon fiber acoustic, and the 7+ stringed instruments i'm looking for aren't the 12-string style doubled up setups. If i have to get one custom made, I'll probably either end up with a mustapick or wes lambe fanned fret 8 string. I'm actually surprised no one is making a reasonably priced 7 string acoustic.
